First Visit

* Photos and checkup visit
* At your first visit, we will take a set of digital photographs and advice Lateral- cephalogram and a panoramic x-ray for the patient
* Digant will then perform an oral exam while the Treatment Coordinator charts the information
* These procedures give us a baseline to monitor changes as primary teeth fall out and the permanent teeth come in

For Adults

Beautiful, healthy smiles are possible for almost anyone. From age 7 to 70, the biological process of tooth movement is the same. In fact, the most important element in deciding whether or not to begin treatment is the condition of a person’s teeth, gums, and supporting bone. As the science of orthodontics has developed gentler wires and more “invisible” braces, many adults are now taking advantage of improving their smile. Orthodontic treatment is always a change for the better regardless of age.

Why should you consider orthodontic treatment?

* Straight teeth are healthy teeth — Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to keep clean with flossing and brushing, and may help prevent other health problems.
* A beautiful, straight smile builds confidence — Orthodontic treatment can help boost your self-confidence, giving you a better quality of life and the freedom to smile without holding back!
* Mouths left untreated can get worse — Not receiving orthodontic treatment when it’s needed can create long-term health issues, and end up costing you more in the end.

For Growing Children

Age 7 – A Year to Remember Many orthodontic problems can be treated earlier and much easier by working with the growth that takes place in younger children. We follow the American Association of Orthodontists’ recommendation that every child have an evaluation by age 7, or even earlier, if a problem is detected.
Interceptive treatment is performed for problems that, if left untreated, could lead to the development of more serious dental problems over time. Examples of this kind of orthodontic treatment may include correction of a thumb and/or finger-sucking habit, guiding permanent teeth into desired position through removal of primary teeth, or using a space maintainer to hold needed space for permanent teeth.
